    Hello CSS Tricks,

    I am preparing to design/code a website for a artist friend of mine, and will then power the site with WordPress. My question is: will it be necessary for me to secure web hosting for the images and WordPress files, or can a custom theme and all imagery be hosted directly on WordPress backend- thus making hosting unnecessary?

    Thanks in advance,
    – j


    If I’m not mistaken you can host through WordPress (WP), but if your friend wants their own domain ( you’ll need your own host. Hosting isn’t that expensive, so if your artist friend is serious I’d recommend finding a host (WP recommends some). If it’s just a hobby go the free route.

    That’s the advice I needed- thanks Erik. I think we will definitely be going the paid hosting route. I was looking for some ways to help him out cost wise- via free image hosting like flickr, etc.- but I heard this is slower loading time, etc. Happen to know if this is true?
